Etude House - Dear My Deep Color & Party Nail Polish Swatches

Those who follow me on twitter would already know that my boyfriend bought me some Korean goodies that were on my wish list! Not only was I surprised that he bought six nail polishes but he also hand picked the colours himself :D

If you were wondering, here are the items he bought me:
Etude House: Wonder Pore Freshner | 6 x Etude House Nail Polish | Skinfood: Black Sugar Mask Wash Off Scrub
Complementary gifts: Etude House Nail Polish & Yogurt Peel Cleansing Foam
This week I also received those fake nail round wheel or whatever they're called from Ebay. I don't know why I didn't buy these earlier because they make life so much easier for swatching nail polish.

So here are the swatches! :D

For reference, I only used one coat of polish for all swatches. From left to right:

Dear My Deep Color Nails: DRD302 Fire Vampire
A very dark purple shade which almost looks black when there's no light. It has a cream finish and matches well with its vampire name except for the fire part.

Dear My Deep Color Nails: DPP503 Double Purple
This looks more like a navy blue than a purple, unless double purple equals navy blue? Another cream finish and probably my favourite shade out of the three non-glittery ones.

Dear My Deep Color Nails: DPP502 Lie Lilac
I think there was a typo error on my label because it says "Lie Lialic". Just your typical lilac shade with a cream finish as well.

Dear My Party Nails: PPP503 Celeb Girl
My favourite shade out of the bunch!! The first coat is quite sheer but after the second coat the light blue cream base is true to colour in the bottle. It's a lovely colour combination if you're a fan of the Parramatta Eels hehehe (Australian football NRL team).

Dear My Party Nails: PPK002 Evening Dress
If you are a lover of anything pink and glitter, this shade is for you. It is filled with lots and lots of glitter confetti that sparkles under the light. The pink base is a bit transparent though and with all the glitter, it can look a bit messy after the third coat.

Dear My Party Nails: PPK007 Dot Dance
A clear base polish with gold, lilac, orange and aqua glitter hexes of different sizes. The colour combination is quite interesting but it does look nice. It can either be used with a coloured base or layered by itself.

Have you tried any polishes from the Party or Deep Colour range?

Hope you're having a relaxing weekend! :)


  1. Correct! :) It claims to:
    - Maintain pH of 4.5+/- 1
    - Refine skin tones
    - Keep elasticity, deep cleanse, and minimise appearance of pores
    - Control sebum
    - Moisturise skin inside & out

  38. Hey outstanding blog! Does running a blog similar to this
    require a great deal of work? I have no knowledge of computer programming but I
    had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if
    you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just wanted to ask.

  39. This is where it can get tricky for some guys, but if you really want
    to be seen as the super alpha male, then you have to be able to make
    your approach and not have all of the hangups that most guys have
    when they approach a woman. It's not sexist, it's not is literally hard coded into our DNA as surely as our hair color or any other physical
    trait. There is a lot of information on the Internet on the right way to kiss a woman.

  40. It is wise to actually contact a broker prior to making the first deposit to put their
    customer service skills to the test. In financial conditions,
    a binary option is that kind of option in which the payoff
    is sometimes some fixed amount of any asset or free in any way.

    The great advantage to this type of trading involves knowing
    upfront what you will win or lose at the conclusion of the trade.
